How to spot 2011's vs. 2010's

I don't think I have seen a post regarding this.

What are the best ways to visually differentiate the 2011's vs. the 2010's. Preferably from each side of the vehicle. Are there enough differences to tell?

Thanks...

GT's now say 5.0 on them and the V6 has Dual Exhaust.
Other than that they look the same

The rear end and taillight treatments are slightly different as well.

Easiest way....

2010 you see the front end mostly, 2011 you see the tailights

People can add duel exhaust or put 5.0 symbols on their cars...(posers)
BUT the #1 way to tell the 10' from 11'??

The 2011 mustang has sidemirrors with a convex mirror built into the far upper corners on both sides. Dead giveaway.

When you look at the side of the 2011 and it is moving...it will be out of sight in the blink of an eye...V-6 OR V-8.

It's what I saw the 2011 GT in the first time... the convex mirror within the driver/passenger mirrors. Only I didn't realize it wasn't included in 2010s.

Is its main purpose for the driver to see the blind spot better?

If people can add a dual exhaust, they can add the mirrors too then. I've added Euro-spec split mirrors to other cars before to eliminate blind spots.

What is different about the back end? I didn't notice anything different, except, as noted by others, here, the diffuser is different.

Actually forgot about the Mirrors, that is how I have been spotting them on the lot.
As for the tail lights headlights and just about the whole rest of the car, they are the same.

If you see it on the street, it's a 2010.
If you see it on ramp 51, it's a 2011.

Waiting sucks.

I agree with Supes2011GT and BRUZER....

V6 has dual exhaust with 2010's rear diffuser, integrated convex mirrors, and brighter pony. Plenty of V6 owners could add duals, but I doubt that'd add the other two.

5.0 also has the convex mirrors, brighter pony, 5.0 badge, and different rear diffuser which show less of the exhaust on the side. Some may add that 5.0 badge, but us 5.0 owners will know the difference.
